Everyone wants a boat that "does it all," and the Hurricane Excursion 128 may very well be the closest thing you'll get. Small and maneuverable enough for short trips on quiet waters, yet outfitted and swift enough for coastal day touring, this boat combines form and function beautifully. . . . Ideal for day touring on quiet coastal waters or large lakes. Adjustable seat provides comfort and support for all-day excursions. Functionally outfitted with perimeter safety lines, stainless steel security bar, bow and stern bulkheads, and two hatches.
The folks at Hurricane Kayaks knew exactly to whom they were speaking when naming the Excursion 128 Kayak. You are the water-borne explorer, you are the ripple across a still pond, you are the intrepid adventurer whose been known to wrassle cotton-mouth critters. While grappling with legless, venomous varmits might not be among your finest moments, paddling away in the uber-light and finely honed Excursion 128 will be. This boat blends the best of touring 'yaks with the spunky fun of recreational boats for fabulous, flat-water escapades. Trylon lightens the load without taking away any structural or on-water stability. While the 128 is rudder ready (rudder sold separately), the shallow V hull makes tracking terrific even without a rudder. Moderate chines give you secondary stability when leaning into a turn. The AireStream seat lets fresh air continually flow and adjusts in every which way to be kind on your bum, back, and legs. Adjustable AireStream thigh pads keep the leg love going strong. Your feet aren't forgotten as the Twist-loc system lets you easily tweak the foot braces to meet your needs. Leave 'em long when lounging with a beer and bring 'em up if you need some speed. ABS bulkheads in front and back help the Excursion ride high on the water, and bow and stern hatches offer a bit more secure storage, though on-deck rigging is more than sufficient to hold a dry bag with gear. The stainless steel security bar behind your seat is deliberately designed for you to cable-lock this 'yak to your car or storage rack.
